Canning to the Moon and Back: A Photo A Day: Week 34
August 19: I know that every time it's late and I haven't taken a photo for the day, inevitably I take one of the moon. In my defense, isn't the moon spectacular?
August 20: Today the boys and I went to the county fair with some friends. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed. Growing up in Wyoming the county fair was a big deal. The Utah County fair did not have nearly as many animals, displays, or exhibits as I expected. Oh well! At least the company was great and the old tractors were cool.
August 21: Our peach tree outside is starting to drop fruit like crazy. So today I canned 14 quarts of peach pie filling. I can't wait to put this yummy stuff inside a flaky crust and cover it all with ice cream!
August 22: Today's late night picture is of Jonah fast asleep. Good thing my boys are such sound sleepers. They don't even notice when the flash goes off!
August 23: Today I picked tons of tomatoes and a whole pile of peaches. I thought this bushel of peaches was particularly lovely. I have already bottled so many peaches and given a bunch away. So these peaches would be more lovely if they could preserve themselves!
August 24: Today we went to the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point. It was $2 Tuesday, so we all went for a great price. Luckily we went later in the day and the museum wasn't too crowded. The boys had a great time with mommy and daddy, looking at the dinosaur bones.
August 25: This week has been so busy with all the canning I've been doing while trying to continue to fix meals and keep the house relatively clean. Today was especially busy and this evening I was desperate for a bike ride. I didn't make it out until it was getting dark, but luckily I have really great headlights for my bike. The moon looked lovely, so I took another picture of it.
August 26: While picking fruit earlier in the week we caught this little guy. Today we decided to let him go. Jonah had a great time watching the grasshopper crawl all over his hand... right up until it pinched his hand with it's mandibles. Then the fun was over! I was pretty sure Jonah was not mortally wounded, but he cried and howled and said "Mommy, I never want to catch another grasshopper ever again!". Somehow, probably because he is a boy, this statement just made me laugh.
